Family man that loves the outdoors and working with my hands rebuilding, restoring, and creating in my spare time...
Mark purchased this Cabin in 2014
Why Mark chose Arkdale
This property was abandoned 40 years ago. We had a plan and made it come true by gutting this old waterfront property and rebuilding it will almost all recycled materials but modern technology. We recreated a sandy beach as well as a BBQ lookout point to sit and enjoy every aspect of this location. Located directly on the ATV,UTV,Snowmobile trails make this place a joy for all seasons and there are even a few extra acres of wooded area directly across the street that are part of our property for all to enjoy

Very cozy and so many activities!
We had a great time at the cabin and It is very kid friendly. Although it was too cold to swim, the kids still enjoyed building sand castles, climbing the ropes, swinging on the swing, fishing, the bonfires, and the paddle boat. It was a very nice and relaxing stay!
The property mangers were very nice and super responsive.
We hope to be back soon!
Home away from home.
Extra detail given to the comfort from bedrooms to decor. Kitchen well appointed. The Mrs. more than happy with having a washer and dryer. The views very scenic! The beach is very clean and fishing was fun. Liked the blinds on the windows. Quite a lot of activities provided games cane poles and more. Our hosts replied FAST to any questions we had. We would definitely stay here again, resort quality! Loved it.
Steve it was a pleasure hosting you and your wife and hope to see you guys again!
The property is beautiful. We feel as though the owners held true to what they offer. Check in and out was a breeze. The cabin is set up so well. Well thought through for travelers. A lot to do for the kids. Fishing was great. Sunsets unforgettable. So many memories made with family and friends! Great value for the money! We will be back!!
Secluded and Quiet
Being only 2.5 hours from Milwaukee, this was a great place to get away for the price. The charming cabin is very secluded in the woods, but then opens up to a beautiful and almost full view of the lake, a small beach front with docks and several of the other cabins on the lake. We went the weekend after Labor Day, so we pretty much had the whole area to ourselves. The fire pit was great and provided awesome views in the evening. We appreciate the fact that they allow pets and our old chihuahuas seemed to have enjoyed it just as much as we did.
Thanks for the kind words about our lakefront cabin and glad you guys enjoyed yourself. Hope to see you again soon!
The check in was smooth, while we did not meet the owners they were clear about being available if needed. The property setting has a very secluded feel to it and wonderful lake access, we used all the boats and other amenities and enjoyed them but none so much as the nice chairs around the fire pit where we had our coffee in the morning and read books in the afternoon and watched the sunset in the evening, I want that space, yes it was that nice. The cabin us fully appointed and we lacked for nothing, when they say bring your food and clothing, that is truly all you need. We loved our 3 day stay, wished it were longer and reccomend it to others
Thank you so much for spending the time, to leave a review, for others to really get the feeling of the cabin.
Hope to see you again soon!
There were a few things that were inaccurate in the listing. We could not swim due to the amount of weeds and algae in the water. The owner stated this was due to work being done on the dam. It would have been nice to know this ahead of time. I was scared to let my dog go swimming in the lake due to stories of animals dying in the area due to red/green algae. We actually left early due to being unhappy. I would have appreciated a refund for the days that we did not use but that was never offered.
The most important thing I want to address here is that the water on Ardake Lake has never had the algae you speak of, nor does it now. That was one of the main reasons we bought the property as toxic algae is of great concern to us as well. There are only the weeds you find in any healthy Wisconsin lake, plants that grow from the bottom and actually serve to filter out toxins. Here is directly from the DNR website specifically about Arkdale Lake:
One measure of a lakes health is the trophic state, which relates to the amount of algae in the water. The average summer trophic state for the last 5 years was 40 (Oligotrophic) and was determined using chlorophyll data. For a Impounded Flowing Water lake, this is considered Excellent."
Arkdale Lake is crystal clear with no algae as we are here now and I wish I could attach a photo! We would never put our guests health at risk! It's unfortunate that the water is low, though that has not been issue for any other guests as I think our other reviews speak for themselves.
I would also like to point out that I asked you outright if there was anything we could do to make it better and implored you to communicate with me regarding your specific concerns and I received no response from you.
While I do sincerely apologize that our property did not meet your expectations I felt it very important to clear up any misinformation regarding our beloved lake, of which our entire lakeside community takes pride in the health of this precious resource.
